Weekend Update: Pete Davidson on Mental Health – SNL


>>THERE HAS BEEN A NATIONAL
CONVERSATION THIS WEEK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH.
HERE TO SHARE HIS THOUGHTS ON THIS TOPIC IS PETE DAVIDSON.
>>HEY. HELLO.
AS SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW, I WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH
BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER. AND DEPRESSION, I DON’T KNOW IF
YOU KNOW THIS, IS A DISEASE THAT AFFECTS MORE THAN 16 MILLION
PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. AND THERE IS NO LIKE CURE, PER
SE. BUT LIKE FOR ANYONE DEALING WITH
IT THERE ARE TREATMENTS THAT CAN HELP.
LIKE, FIRST OF ALL IF YOU THINK YOU ARE DEPRESSED SEE A DOCTOR
AND TALK TO THEM ABOUT MEDICATION.
ALSO, BE HEALTHY. EATING RIGHT AND EXERCISE CAN
MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. AND FINALLY, IF YOU ARE IN THE
CAST OF A LATE NIGHT COMEDY SHOW IT MIGHT HELP IF THEY, YOU KNOW,
DO MORE OF YOUR SKETCHES. [ LAUGHTER ]
>>WAIT, WAIT. ARE YOU SAYING THAT YOU ARE
DEPRESSED BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH AIR TIME?
>>NO. I WAS BORN DEPRESSED.
BUT IT MIGHT MAKE ME FEEL BETTER IF I WAS ON TV MORE.
>>>>I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS THE
BEST APPROACH, PETE.>>IT’S WORTH A SHOT.
I MEAN, COME ON. THIS SHOW IS LIKE EIGHT HOURS
LONG AND THERE IS 50 SKETCHES A WEEK.
IT SEEMS WEIRD YOU WOULDN’T USE ONE THEM TO FIGHT MENTAL HEALTH.
BUT I GUESS THAT’S NOT YOUR THING.
>>MAYBE ONE APPROACH WOULD BE TO WRITE BETTER SKETCHES.
>>THEY WON’T WORK. MY SKETCHES ALL SUCK, BECAUSE
THEY’RE WRITTEN BY A DEPRESSED PERSON.
LORNE SAID THAT.>>SO IT’S KIND OF LIKE A
CHICKEN AND THE EGG THING.>>EXACTLY.
IN FACT “CHICKEN AND THE EGG” WAS ALSO A SKETCH THAT GOT CUT.
IT WAS ABOUT A CHICKEN THAT ATE EGGS, BUT IT WAS ALSO ABOUT
BLACK LIVES MATTER.>>IT SOUNDS TERRIBLE.
>>IT IS. SO I NEED YOU TO WRITE IT FOR
ME.>>WAIT, IT’S A NOT EVEN WRITTEN
YET?>>NO, I’M DEPRESSED.
LOOK — HERE. I HAVE A DOCTOR’S NOTE.
I’LL READ IT.>>FOR THE AIR TIME.
>>YEAH. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, PETE’S
— PLEASE USE PETE IN MORE SKETCHES WHERE HE GETS TO KISS
THE HOST. AND USE MORE OF HIS RAP VIDEOS,
WHICH I HEAR ARE ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD.
ALSO — THIS DOCTOR IS GOOD, MAN.
>>SOUNDS LIKE A REAL DOCTOR.>>ALSO, HE SHOULD PLAY REX
TILLERSON A LOT. SIGNED PETE DAVIDSON’S DOCTOR.
>>THAT SOUNDS LEGIT. THAT SOUNDS LIKE A LEGIT —
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] — DOCTOR, PETE.
>>ALSO, YOU LOOK NOTHING LIKE REX TILLERSON.
>>SO GIVE ME A MASK. HE LOOKS LIKE A MUPPET FELL IN A
LAKE. AND THAT’S JUST ONE OF THE MANY
JOKES YOU WILL SEE NEXT WEEK ON PETE DAVIDSON’S FIRST
IMPRESSIONS SEGMENT.>>PETE DAVIDSON, EVERYONE.
>>HOW HAVE I NOT BEEN FIRED.>>WEEKEND UPDATE.
I’M COLIN JOST.>>I’M MICHAEL CHE.
GOOD NIGHT.

    I’ve never heard BPD described as a form of depression, interesting. In fact, in the old axis system, personality disorders were axis 2 while depressive disorders were axis 1.

  • Ben Kahnke

    He must not sleep very well, he always has those very dark circles under his eyes. It's interesting that he doesn't have make up cover those up. I have enormous respect for people like Pete Davidson and Robin Williams. They bring joy to millions while suffering in silence.

  • Bolsheviki

    BPD isn't a form of depression…unless he was diagnosed with that in addition to his BPD diagnosis. BPD is a Cluster B (emotional, dramatic, and erratic) personality disorder.

    BPD is not a form of depression, it is a personality disorder. Most people with BPD also struggle with major depression. So they can, and most often do, co exist. However, they are two different diagnoses.

  • Kurt Fredette

    All you gotta do is just take many shots of Eminems music and 2 years later I was fine

  • Shelly Ann Patrick

    I follow all Muppet on twitter instagram. In my childhood Sesame Street was only show for kids. On my black and white TV after school I used to sing songs with Elmo. I still love Elmo. It's very nice to see Mr Pete talks sometimes about politics. It's just my mom died in 1994 I'm 77 born as long she was alive she never showed me a single Bollywood movie. Only Sesame Street, Chips, Wild West movies, & news channel. Newspaper news. I basically grew up watching politics News so I don't know anything except politics. Still I'm not enough qualified to be given a ticket in elections so I just write speech of my boss he speaks whatever he likes but once in a moon he uses things wrote by me. I was hated on Google Plus because I pull politics in everything. I white dude fought with me for like few months he trolled me blocked me from following few things with help of his friends. He said bad things about politics. So I stopped going on Google Plus & now I hear in Feb 2019 Google Plus has been shut down. Mr Pete won't like me in real life because I watch news of politics of any country & like to talk about it my all jokes are also about politicians. I've started to follow him on twitter account in his name available on Google I'll not write him anything about politics. Same thing I do with fan club of Mr Keane Reeves. They gave me warning don't write to us if you are straight ground worker of Rahul Gandhi or you are his spy stationed in his enemy land we don't want to talk about your interest in politics. We will block you. So I try to only write them things related to them.

  • Welfare Queen

    I LOVE Liberals they pay me not to work! Gracias

  • & K

    This was fantastic. Props to Pete for being open and honest about his mental illness. BPD is so common, yet still so taboo.
    Good for him for finding some humor in the struggle and continuing to raise awareness for so many who struggle in silence.

  • & K

    "no, I'm like depressed!"

  • Viva Villain

    We need Pete Davidson on Joe Rogan

  • Holly B

    Pete, you are so talented. Take care

  • Olivia Tom

    Must been on the spot. Not he woulda gotten away with that if it was run by them before the show.

  • Mercedes Moreno

    Please use Pete in more sketches , please! I can’t say please enough… he speaks for so many of us and when we see him, there is a ray of hope we can make it out.

  • dgmail1000

    Pete Davidson is to this Generations SNL as the original cast was to my generation

  • Nick Lima

    Although funny, depression comes from feeling purposelessness & hopelessness. We have a void in our hearts (soul) that can only be filled with Jesus Christ. I pray he finds God through revelation & Pete seeks The Most High because Earth is not our final home & life continues forever after death. It's very important we make peace with God (Yahuah) and have our sins forgiven before we face Judgement, because our Eternal sentence is forever. Bliss in Heaven with Christ, the angels, the Church , the Father & the Holy Spirit; or hell with Satan & all the demons in the lake of fire.

  • Henrik Wenne

    Don't forget therapy

  • ARMYAna M Rios

    I thought NYC the people, already voted to discontinue the main office of mental hospitals. Why was St Mary’s Hospital, and other facilities removed from NYC? I could be wrong, I already witnessed strange activities around NYC areas, not returning to school, not returning to work, and there still NORMAL. I already sent a message to MD doctors, if there’s a possibility to remodel all hospitals, without any contamination, that is already spreading through out the country. I follow my doctors for a yearly check, Dental, Optical, MD, etc. If anyone disagrees about Mental issues, you have to send the message to nyc.gov. There are the authorities to remodel any mistakes.

  • Godessofthegoldendawn
